Our block for this month is Temple Court – another one of our traditional style favourites. Here’s the block as it appears in the EQ8 Library
And here’s a variation of the Temple Court block with an adjustment at the centre making it much easier to piece – we’ve twiddled the colouring so that you can see the adjustment clearly.
We’ve played first with the block as it appears in EQ8, switching colours and moving them around the block –
And then there were the quilts from these blocks, just in straight settings, no sashings –
We had to pause at this point and remember to show the easier-to-piece variation, starting with the block and moving on to quilts.
So, some interesting options from simple changes – and changes that are so easy to make in EQ8 so that you can review before committing to cloth!

Our Technical Department has also produced a pdf to download for the Temple Court variation so you have the best of both worlds!
